The perennial part was more enjoyable, although I now would cut down on the perennial sowing :-) I have observe the different knight spurs. Cardinal larkspur (Delphinium Cardinale), Eldriddarsporre (D. nudicaule), Yellow larkspur (D. semibarbatim) and Prairielarkspur (D. virescens). The first three all germinate easily, but may well be tricky in the garden. The cold is not the biggest problem for them, but the winter wet. Sandy soil around them is to recommend, in addition to a calm place. The last, however, I have no experience at all. The Blue Mountain poppy (Meconopsis bentonicifolia), I must sow again. If you only think that after they germinated, they must have cold nights to have the strength to grow further, there´s no great problem to have strong fine plants. So the easiest way is to sow the seeds and put the pots out on a shady location outdoors. The alpine poppy (Papaver radicatum), I also have to sow I think. It is a pretty little poppy, which fits well in a rockery. Ideally, it should not have any other plants beside themselves, they are not good at competition.
Annuals I usually do not sow anymore. Think it's too much work for plants that will only be living one summer, think I have become lazy :-) But after seeing Mammanettes all fine pictures of here poppys, I think it´s time to order some seeds this year :-) Perhaps it will be nasturtium 'Alaska' also. Although I sowed it really late last summer, they became great. Be good!
